gatos. let's bring in our meteorologist jeff ranieri who i believe my run out to the iphone line. i think apple timed it with nasa. what do you think? all those people with those new phones. taking pictures. right now the good news. the onshore flow is starting to weaken. five to ten miles an hour. so as temperatures are cooling off, we will see that fog and also some low cloud cover re-form. what you'll find out of our live hd sky camera network, is an excellent view. this is best case scenario right now. to be able to see that flyover as we head into tomorrow morning. just because it is clear doesn't mean it will be totally clear for the morning hours but we'll detail that for you. let's get into the next 48 hours. we have this area of low pressure. it has had all kinds of storm tracks the past couple days but here's the good news. for the upcoming weekend. it will take more of the dry storm track and move inland as we head throughout saturday and sunday. primarily for a lot of you, it will mean a cooler weekend as we head into sunday. we'll get some barmer air moving
11:20pm
from the south. we'll have a widespread in our temperatures. 50s to 60s at the coast. a few areas of fog and for the interior valleys, from 70s to also 80s. so again, the next three days. a little below averages but definitely comfortable. as we head throughout tomorrow morning, of course the "endeavour" flyover. you can see the fog will be here across the coastal mountains. as we advance this, here's the great part. the fog continues to push back as we head into the 9:00 hour which is currently showing nasa ames at moffett field with relatively clear skies. i think it may be overdoing the clearing a little bit but nonetheless. you should be able to see the shuttle flyover as we head throughout tomorrow. that even means in san francisco for the 9:00 hour, temperature in the mid 50s. a little low cloud cover. definitely the best case scenario for san francisco this time of year. and back here, temperatures will be on the cool side. we'll need the jack but we'll have some broken clouds and some
11:21pm
sunshine. not a bad forecast for you. and speaking of the "endeavour," it has had a long history. it arrived in 1991 at the kennedy space center and it has had 25 missions, 299 days in space and circled the earth 4671 time. your upper 40s to low 50s in the north bay. the daytime highs should top out like this with low 80s in san jose. 85 in livermore. the three-day forecast arriving saturday and correspondingly, the temperatures will start to drop into the upper 70s. what about on time as we head into next week with plenty of upper 70s to near 80 degrees. i saw this shuttle when it first lifted off. in central florida near daytona beach. a little kid. i'll see it fly over the bay area. thanks. just ahead, seconds from disaster. the unbelievable video from a soccer match. stay with us.
